Event description

Description

When is the last time you paid for porn? Do you check if you’re watching a video that has been pirated? Have you ever worried about the conditions under which a clip has been made? We are a society which is increasingly aware of ethical consumption, conscious of workers’ rights, and concerned with the consistency of our values. And yet, porn is a product where we still seem happy to engage in cognitive dissonance over whether our consumption is good for the performer – and, in fact, good for us. How can we develop better viewing habits both for ourselves and for those on the other side of the screen?

Special guests include:

Alexxa Vice, 'matress actress' and UKAP Adult Awards winner 2017

Sam Larke, producer at Joybear Pictures, an ethical porn site

Kate Isaacs, founder of #NotYourPorn. It’s a campaign to remove non-consensual content from UK porn sites

Neelam Tailor, a freelance journalist with a focus on news, race, pop culture, sociology, environmental issues, politics, and gender

Chair: Nichi Hodgson, journalist, broadcaster and author The Curious History of Dating: From Jane Austen to Tinder


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
